As if Amazon didn't already own a significant chunk of the online shopping market, it is now looking to expand its reach with Handmade at Amazon, an online store dedicated to artisan-made goods.
The Handmade at Amazon store is divided into seven categories such as furniture, artwork, home decor and jewelry, and allows you to purchase one-of-a-kind items made my artisans. In fact, the store is already stocked with 80,000 items from artisans in 60 countries around the world. Every single item is handmade, with each artisan having a profile on the site so you can get to know them and how they make their products.
It might seem odd to see a corporate giant making use of craft culture in this manner, but with its global reach, Amazon is sure to strike gold with this latest venture.
